END-ORDOVICIAN (440 Ma)
Severity: 2nd worst
Cause: Some type of C cycle disturbance, not well constrained
Climate: Abrupt ice age followed by rapid warming
Aftermath: Cambrian organisms (e.g. trilobites) decimated
During the End-Ordovician mass extinction, 25% of known marine families and 60% of marine genera were wiped out. Warm-water invertebrates were the hardest hit, as the event was likely caused by a severe cooling event in the world’s oceans triggered by Gondwanan glaciation.However, as with just about all of the mass extinctions, other causes have been offered, such as a gamma ray burst and volcanism and weathering.

  8. A sudoku of linear functionals

    isomorphismes:

    Today’s glossary provoked by Michael Spivak.

    image

    I’ve drawn two vector spaces connected by a linear homomorphism ƒ, plus a linear functional λ going to ℝ. After seeing these pictures I hope it’s easier to understand how the pullback ƒ* works.

    Here’s one of the main pictures for flavour:

    Also, you can probably just skim the pictures and get the point (especially the Number Field one and the final one). That’s the fastest way to read this post.



    Start with an abstract 𝓥ector space.

    I’ll do some violence because I’ll need coordinates in a minute.

Flowchart: David Foster Wallace On How To Live A Compassionate Life - In “This Is Water,” David Foster Wallace offers thoughts on living a compassionate life. Jessica Hagy beautifully illustrates them here. - If you’re automatically sure that you know what reality is, and you are operating on your default setting, then you, like me, probably won’t consider possibilities that aren’t annoying and miserable … But if you really learn how to pay attention, then you will know there are other options. It will actually be within your power to experience a crowded, hot, slow, consumer-hell type situation as not only meaningful, but sacred, on fire with the same force that made the stars: love, fellowship, the mystical oneness of all things deep down.
